On the drawing board

An elevated position in Sheffield city centre and strong historic streetscape required a sensitive design approach.

The plan is “L” shaped generating two wings of accommodation which echo the historic building line and give way to an external courtyard. The tower rises to 16 storeys on Winter Street, it’s proportion and orientation presenting a slender profile when viewed from the South East. The second wing steps down to five storeys in respect to the height and scale of the neighbouring Victorian Hospital complex. The resulting roof terrace provides additional outdoor amenity space for residents.

Indoor amenity facilities are concentrated on the lower two floors to maximise activity at street level. The façade proposals seek to present an honest reflection of the residential functions behind. A column and beam approach is adopted for the façade modelling whereby the structural grid is reflected in the fenestration, with deep revealed brick pilasters rising through the height of the building and floors expressed at alternate levels.
